    8. 3.0
      Former Employee

      Old school blue chip resume experience

      Jan 18, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Useful generalist skillset ("toolkit") broadly recognized and often sought by MBB alums Level up to mid-senior level titles (Director, VP) in big corporations faster, especially if joining strategy, innovation, business operations or similar function Can have diversity of experiences across industries and functions (if you don't know what you like) or pursue your interests (to the extent there's overlap with what the firm does) Structured mentorship and development, very useful for undergrads joining as a BA

      Cons

      Losing prestige due to (1) more prestigious organizations like Google and Uber (2) fast growth over previous two decades or so that led to proliferation of ops work and alums "out there" in the wild that may not make as much of an impression as historically may have been the case (3) scandals like South Africa and Purdue Pharma

      The cons were that you have to be invested in the company, they expect you to dedicate all your time.
